Is that a trick question Mr Tell?

I am referring to the 1 minute 50 sec version tapering off to a "We can't Agree"

Oh--no, I was serious! I just knew I had a CPW from that date, but recalled nothing else...My little sister always refers to songs from 65 and 66 that I have sent to her as the Alvin and the Chipmunks era since there are a few high pitched numbers, vocally speaking, but to be honest, I only have a few of semi-complete shows from 66, and couldn't quote/recap any of them for this sort of trivia.

Hope all is well.

While gathering the singles listing below, I found this at a site reviewing their output I found interesting:

"Grateful Dead
This is the part where I'd tell you that the Grateful Dead are the best band above or below earth, only I'm not a Dead Head. For years, I struggled to hear what others heard, only to come away empty headed. There are albums that hold a special place in my heart today--American Beauty, Aoxomoxoa, Workingman's Dead, Terrapin Station--but nothing that would forge a fealty to follow them across country. I don't consider the Dead a progressive rock band, but they share many of the same musical sensibilities (e.g., elements of psychedelia and, later, jazz). For the most part, they inhabit their own musical world, defying easy categorization, digesting music as an organism might and converting it into life-giving gasses. Their fans remain the equivalent of musical freemasons, ensuring that the spirit of the Dead remains alive, and that alone should inspire some faith in all of us."

Yep--doing well, thanks j!

Musical Freemasons, huh? Does that mean that Dan Brown is working on yet another literary masterpiece (tongue firmly implanted in cheek) describing a series of hidden signs left behind by the upper echelon of Dead Heads that, if interpreted correctly, lead to the "Ultimate Show", a lost fabled performance capable of rending the universe apart and showing us God in his/her/its true form? Well, it seems that Tell is already on that quest, aided by many of the fine individuals that inhabit this place.

SDH - That is classic! They all are pretty good, but the Nuge is a true double of Bobby.

Dough Knees/STEALin

Born Cross-Eyed/Dark Star

Dupree's/Cosmic Charlie?

UJB/NSB

Though I'm not sure that the first song listed in each pair is the A and the 2nd is the B.

A Trick Tell if you ask me...

But no one ever does...

Methinks (seems to have become a popular word here) Brother Tell be more clever than he lets on... After all, he never comes down here to my part of the Valley... Even if I'm playing Caution while a real train is going by...

If anyone understood that, could you explain it to me please???
